Let me start off with my level of computer literacy....very little ( think IQ level for computer OS's of maybe 60). I've had great success with win 7, but with all of the negative reviews/problems that I see with win 10, I'm reluctant to buy/build a new computer with win 10 on it.
Where the rub comes is what to do with the newer camera tech. that I'm finding on 4k cameras for both stills and video. Win 7 can't handle the 4k video processing programs such as Corel products that require win 8 or 10. I also want to have the ability to do astroimaging (AI) with my current stable of programs: SGP, PI, PS5, ect, and the ethernet connection that I have going to my observatory.
Looking at Linux seems a no go due to difficulty level and lack of compatibility with my AI programs. I've thought about Mac, but again there is that lack of compatibility with the AI.
For the sake of Kiss, is there a solution out there, or am I just chasing my tail? Thanks for any help.
